More locks and another crisp October day

A sight we don't often see on the towpath....
We are used to making way for cyclists but I think this is the first time we have seen a horse being ridden.  

A glorious morning and we were on our way around one to share the locks with but we took them slowly, just one paddle and one gate and they were all in our favour.   

Approaching the Bascote flight of 2
and looking back down from the top lock of the Bascote flight.
Then a short run to moor just before Long Itchington.   No good going further in as there are several nice pubs and Geoff has decided to have a DRY October.!!

Total distance:4.84 miles 
Elapsed time:3h52m56s 
Average speed:1.25 mph (3.57 lock/mph)
